DJ Reviews for Melville Castle Hotel

Helpful information for DJs and entertainers visiting Melville Castle Hotel provided by trusted members of

10/03/2016MarqueeGround Floor
This review was provided by Lee Live: Wedding DJ

Permanent wooden dancefloor

Low permanent stage

No useable in-house lighting effects

No air conditioning

Haze/smoke prohibited


No effective blackout


ACCESS: Ideal. Typical Marquee.

FACILITIES: A small stage in the corner of the room. Very low ceiling at rear due to hanging drapes.

STAFF: No issues

POWER PROVISION: Long extensions (up to 25m) required

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: "If you want to avoid having all your expensive equipment on the same power as the Limiter then run a cable from the other side of the room. But they check that the speakers are plugged into the limiter!! It is set at around 88db on the dancefloor. So even people stamping feet or singing will trigger it. Blown a speaker in this place. I recommend turning a speaker away from the limiter mic which is in the middle of the dancefloor . "
